In the past 2 months, I've had 4 significant falls. One just today. First time I fell off of a step ladder. I thought I had all four legs on the driveway...instead I had only 3 legs on firm ground and with that I fell off of the top step, onto the concrete, landing on my elbow and ribs.
Next fall...I was walking down the stairs at work. I just let go of the handrail and I fell from the third stair from the bottom. I fell on my right knee, onto concrete again!
Next fall....Again I was on the top step of a step ladder (you'd think I would be more careful) and I just took a step back and fell right to the ground. This time, not on concrete, but I took a hard enough spill.
Then today, I was innocently on my way to put some bird food out and I took a step toward the stairs on my deck and I did not realize how icy it was and I fell down 3 stairs, landing with my back crashing into the stairs.
I tell you all of these falls hurt....a lot!!!! But you know what? I did not get hurt. No broken bones or permanent damage. Just a little aches and pains!!
I also know that if I were not in good shape and as heavy as I am here....
I do know that I would have had some serious injuries!!!
SO if nothing else.....getting fit and thinner helps in more ways than just what shows on that scale.
Keep up the great work my Friends. We've got this!!
